On Friday, July 19th, we visited Barn Hill Preserve for a field trip. First we started off meeting some of the animals that they have there.
Voodoo, the wolf pup
Everyone got a chance to pet him.
You could tell he was a pup because he was teething on everything.
Next up was a cockatoo named Andrew who liked to play Lazarus. The handler told him he was dead and then he played dead. Then he would resurrect him.
Then he brought out a kinkajou named Guapo.
Everyone got to pet him as well.
Then we saw the Flemish giant rabbit and a red kangaroo joey named Roux.
Next the students got to dissect an owl pellet.
Once they finished dissecting the pellets, then we toured the rest of the facility to see the other animals that they have.
The kids were able to feed the llama and the pony.
Entertaining the cockatoo with Craig's hat
Luke & I think this was a baby rhea but they reminded me of the little dinosaurs in the opening scene of Jurassic Park 2.
After all the demos and tours were over, for an additional cost we were able to take a picture with either the kangaroo joey or the wolf pup.
